What? They want to build a mosque at Ground Zero? Don’t you remember? The Twin Towers of the World Trade center bore the brunt of radical Islam when airliners filled with gasoline were purposefully slammed into the towers. Almost 3,000 human beings were crushed to death under the rubble when each tower collapsed! OK, you’re right, it is perfectly legal. We are a country of laws, and we’re all for tolerance and freedom of religion. But is building a house of Islamic worship right there, so close to Ground Zero, really the right thing to do?
Doing this would be like… building a Nazi museum close to the Auschwitz concentration camp… or like… the Japanese building a memorial to their Kamikaze war dead at Pearl Harbor…. or like… allowing the KKK to commemorate their efforts with a little construction across the street from the hotel in Memphis where Martin Luther King was assassinated by a lunatic. No, I’m not comparing Muslims to Nazis, but placing a mosque near Ground Zero is just a little insensitive, don’t you think? When can America get some tolerance from others? Please honor and respect our feelings, this once.
It would be called “Cordoba House,” and stand 13 stories tall - only 600 feet from where the Twin Towers stood. Those who are opposed to the mosque being built at Ground Zero don’t hate Muslims or those who want to build the mosque. We just think they’re wrong. Why not build ten mosques close by, instead? How about Greenwich Village, Midtown Manhattan, Uptown Manhattan, Connecticut, Brooklyn, Queens, Staten Island, Westchester, and for good measure, two in New Jersey? Make them all not 13, but 23 stories high! But why build even one at Ground Zero? Why would anyone get angry and call us intolerant? We are not.
Cordoba is a city in Spain, and it does not mean 'conquest of the West,' as some have suggested. But it does imply the same. Conquered by a Muslim army in the year 711, Cordoba is a city in Spain. Radical Muslims are already laughing at Americans like the Mayor of New York and others, who are speaking out for the Cordoba House mosque to be built at Ground Zero. They'll certainly have plenty to celebrate if the project is completed!
